  • I must have pasted the wrong link

    The other day I blogged about a tribe of indians in south american called the Piraha.  Amazingly I hadn't gotten responses whatsoever.  I sure hope I didn't lose the faithful 5 people that read my blog.  =)

  • OnLoad versus Page_Load

    So I heard somewhere that it is better/faster to do the following...

    override protected OnLoad(System.EventArgs e)

  • I Figure I Need All the Help I Can Get

    There are by some estimates more than a million weblogs. But most of them get no visibility in search engines. Only a few "A-List" blogs get into the top search engine results for a given topic, while the majority of blogs just don't get noticed. The reason is that the smaller blogs don't have enough links pointing to them. But this posting could solve that. Let's help the smaller blogs get more visibility!

  • PowerUp TreeView Control

    Has anyone ever used this control?  If so have you ever handled the selection of a Node and maintained expansion state across a postback?  I have been unable to make this work and I have not located any help via Google.

  • This puts things in perspective

    So the past 3 days I have been bickering online with Frans and Thomas.  Last night I was in a car accident.  Today continuing the argument with them seems like a total waste of time. 

  • Are all Americans racist or just me?

    Thomas from Thona Consulting asserted that I was racist in this comment.  While I disagree with this wholeheartedly, it got me thinking.  The whole "discussion" was prompted by my observation that Thomas didn't write well formed english in some of his posts.  Is it racist to assume that if someone is communicating in an english speaking forum on an english speaking site, that they be able to form intelligible sentences?  Is it racist if I don't even know what race Thomas is?  I could understand preferentialism maybe, but not racism. 

  • Debunking the Thona Theory

    I was introduced to this post on the ASP.NET Forums... has since posted about it on his blog as well...

    I don't understand why 2 people in this community feel the need to smother everyone with their opinions about Runtime O/R Mapping tools.  I think O/R Mappers have their place.  I have always admitted that.  What I will not concede to is a blanket statement that CodeSmith is somehow inferior to these tools.

  • CodeSmith Presentation

    Overall I think the presentation went really well.  Shannon and I felt it wasn't our best performance, but we think we were able to appropriately demonstrate just how powerful CodeSmith can be.   Eric has already linked to the presentation from his blog, but here is the link for you faithful 5 that look at my blog.  =)

  • YACSP : Yet Another CodeSmith Presentation

    Shannon Davidson (remains blogless) and I will be presenting on the wonders of CodeSmith tomorrow night at the Plano .Net Users Group.  We have been looking forward to this one for quite awhile.  We have been doing the rounds in Dallas/Fort Worth, but I think we are finding out “presenting center.”  If you can stomach the sight of Shannon and the sound of my voice stop by and check it out.
